What you'll learn in this wine tasting class:

By far, my favorite class of the year. We’ll pour nine wines. Some from islands. Some from volcanoes. Some from volcanoes on islands. We’ll talk about why these wines are unique, what sets them apart, and how to track them down.
Islands are a special habitat for growing grapes. When the vineyards hug the coast, the grapes soak up the sun by day, and enjoy cool breezes by night, courtesy of the cooling effects of the ocean. The sun allows complex flavors to develop, while the evening chill helps retain acidity, imparting freshness to the wines, and balance.

Volcanoes offer the same benefits, but here, it’s the high altitude that sends the thermometer south at night. Volcanoes also contain soils poor in nutrients, but high in mineral content. Such nutrient-deficient soils are actually wine’s best friend, as they force the vines to struggle, to dig, to hunt for what they need. In turn, they produce fewer grapes, but with more intense flavors, more stuffing, more of the good stuff.

We’ll sample bottles from the Canary Islands, Mount Etna, Monte Vulture, Santorini, Corsica, New Zealand, and more. A mix of whites and reds, all compelling, and perfect for the summer. As always, cheese, charcuterie, etc. will be served. We are most excited about this class, and hope you will join us.
